Adhi speaks about Botanical Garden

Adhi, born in Edayanchavadi, works in the Botanical Garden, which aims to educate people about local plants and how they remain green even in the dry conditions. He has introduced the use of native species in Auroville rather than exotic plants which need lots of water and maintenance. Local children from 150 government schools in the region come to the botanical garden and are taught about the nursery and alternative energy, plant trees and are encouraged to take plants home to create gardens. There are also attempts to produce and conserve seeds of native Indian vegetables – original heritage seed independent of commercial genetically-modified seed.

Lucas talks about EcoPro

Effective micro-organisms (EM) technology is a liquid mix of microbes developed in Japan, which promotes vigorous plant growth, producing better agricultural crops. It can also be used to manage organic waste, even sewerage and polluted water bodies, reducing smells and controlling rotting. He is promoting the use of EM in waste management across Tamil Nadu as well as in Auroville, where people use it in their houses as well as in farms. Although academics are still skeptical, those using EM are convinced. “In the end, a solid waste management facility depends on skillful management and very little technology and very simple infrastructure,” he says.

About renewable energies and recycling

Gilles G, one of the founders of Solar Kitchen, talks about using the sun to produce steam to power a canteen to cater for up to 1,000 people. The system is still a hybrid, with diesel used to supplement sunshine, but previous diesel consumption has been cut by more than 30 percent.Robi from Aureka also talks about the production of wind pumps and their use in the green belt where the ban on electricity and diesel forces people to go for alternatives. And Gillian, coordinator of the waste collection service Ecoservice, speaks of attempts to avoid landfill, and to establish recycling – getting inspired help from local people who, for example, pointed out that things such as toothbrushes can be recycled.
